Paulsen to write ‘Babysitting’

Symone, Cyrus to star in Disney film

Disney has tapped Tiffany Paulsen to write “Further Adventures in Babysitting,” with Raven Symone and Miley Cyrus to star and Lynda Obst producing.

Project’s a remake of 1987’s “Adventures in Babysitting,” which David Simkins penned and Chris Columbus helmed in his feature bow. Obst and the late Debra Hill produced for Disney’s Touchstone label.

Elisabeth Shue starred as a suburban high school senior whose dull night of babysitting is interrupted by a call for help from a friend.

Paulsen most recently wrote “Nancy Drew,” directed by Andy Fleming and starring Emma Roberts; Warner Bros. is releasing the pic June 15.

She also wrote Fox Searchlight’s “Fast Girls,” which Billie Woodruff is attached to direct, and recently sold one-hour TV show “Emerald City” to ABC Family with Donald De Line set to produce.

Paulsen is repped by CAA and managed by Nine Yards Entertainment.
